Lenovo Personal Computers Have Good Reviews

Lenovo is one of the superior computer manufacturers according to average user and expert review score data that we have collected for all personal computers.

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The average total storage capacity of desktop computers of this age and type is 800GB, and the total storage capacity range from 180GB to 8.3TB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the Lenovo P900 has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that were released more than two years ago.

If this Lenovo personal computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo P700 (£1,851.60) (2TB).

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed

The Lenovo P900 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The average memory clock speed of desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the P900 is 1,900MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of 256 gigabytes, the Lenovo P900 has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years. The average maximum internal memory of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 140GB.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The Lenovo P900 has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than the DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type found on most many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

This personal computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type across all desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the P900.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst similar types of personal computer.

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The Lenovo P900 has more Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports than most of the many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the P900. Most of the computers that were released more than two years ago only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however this personal computer has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

Eight USB 3.0 Ports

The Lenovo P900 is a eight USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other desktop computers of this type and age have between two and eight USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Four PCI Express X16 (Gen 3.x) Slots

The Lenovo P900 has more PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots than most of the personal computers of this type and age. Most of the many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago only have between two and three PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots, however this computer has four PCI Express x16 (Gen 3.x) slots.

Chart Edit

Three 5.25" Bays

Most of the other PCs that are a similar age to the P900 only have between one and two 5.25" bays, however the Lenovo P900 has three 5.25" bays.

Chart Edit

Four 3.5" Bays

The Lenovo P900 is a four 3.5" bay desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The Lenovo P900 has a greater number of placements than most many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the P900.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.4 gigahertz, the Lenovo P900 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the P900. Across all the many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the P900 the processor clock speeds range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.9GHz.

If you want a desktop computer with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the P700 (2.6GHz), or the P900 (£3,366.71) (2.6GHz) both from Lenovo.
